LIS Lisbon Airport Info & Guide
Where is Lisbon Airport?
One of the few oceanside European cities, with a subtropical-Mediterranean climate producing mild winters and warm summers, it should hardly be surprising that Lisbon is the 7th-most-visited city in Southern Europe (the others are Istanbul, Rome, Barcelona, Madrid, Athens, and Milan).
Below the Castle of São Jorge, which overlooks the city, Lisboa has been experiencing a bit of a renaissance. Today, a contemporary culture, blended with sounds of fado (the haunting, historic music), speaks to a modern Lisbon that is both alive and thriving, and making its mark on today's Europe.
Lisbon Portela Airport (IATA: LIS, ICAO: LPPT), also known as Lisbon International Airport, is located just 7 kilometres (4.3 miles) north of Lisbon's city centre, Portugal's capital city. A new International and Transit Terminal opened in July 2013.
LIS is more than the Lisboa's airport, it is one of the largest airports in southern Europe and an international gateway to Europe. In 2012, Lisbon Airport handled 15,301,176 passengers, ranking it 28th busiest overall in Europe.
Lisbon Airport is the main base-hub of TAP Portugal. Other airlines serving LIS include: Air France, Air Transat, British Airways, Cairo, Dubrovnik, easyJet, Finnair, Iberia, KLM, Lufthansa, Luzair, Orbest, SATA, US Airways and White.
